I can't believe we're into the month of August already. Didn't we just celebrate New Years!!! The year is flying by and I hope you all are having a fabulous summer. This month our review team chose:
Wicked for Hire
Medical student Amanda Meyers thought she had her life all planned out until people started dying the moment they touched her. Being cleared of any wrongdoing didn’t stop the medical school from expelling her, and it didn’t rid her of the unfortunate nickname Grim Reaper.
Luckily, having a rep as the harbinger of death isn’t a total resume killer. Rick Rowling, Special Agent for the FBI’s Paranormal Cases Division recruits her to work for the Bureau. But the sexy, brilliant, outrageous loose cannon proves to be just as untouchable as the mysterious creature or creatures that may be responsible for the seemingly unsolvable murder that becomes their first case together.
Instead of treating patients, Amanda’s life becomes a test of her patience and a wild ride into the wicked paranormal world where her new boss runs the show. Together they face a ghoulish force that could destroy the entire city and a grueling family dinner that could leave Amanda contemplating harakiri.
It’s a battle of life and debt [student debt, that is] and saving the world has never been so funny.
Wicked for Hire is a quick, short read. I enjoyed this story surrounding the witty Amanda and the fast talking, and strange Rick Rowling.
Mandy gets terminated from medical school due to her deadly touch, which gets her hired by Rick into the FBI for paranormal cases. It gets a little hairy in the beginning, mainly because Mandy doesn't believe or understand what her job will entail. Rick takes Amanda on quite a wild ride into a mysterious case, which he seems to figure out quite easily, while she stands by and learns. Rick also seems to be immediately attracted to Mandy, however, she thinks the guy is off-his-rocker. But she can't resist the handsomely charming Rick much longer.
I believe this novella sets up the reader for the next book installments.
Head over to read Nana and Empi's reviews!
Love the sound of this. Seems like a fun read, and with how fleeting time is anymore, the fact that it is quick and short piques my interest, too, LOL!ReplyDelete
That's a pretty cool premise, and a novella to boot. Thanks for hipping me to it:)ReplyDelete
Yes, definitely sets the stage for the next book. I'll probably read the book 2 in due courseReplyDelete
Great review. Rick is off his rocker, but he's hilarious.ReplyDelete
